This past Thanksgiving was 100% keto for me…and it was the most delicious Thanksgiving ever! Even our non-keto guests agreed the food was awesome. Everyone’s favorite dish was definitely the low carb Maple Pecan Bars.
A big portion of the weight I gained in my twenties can be attributed to fried rice. All Chinese food was a mystery to me until college. Once I found Orange Chicken and Fried Rice from Panda Express, there was no looking back. At least until it was time to take off the weight for good. Low carb, high fat lifestyles and fried rice just do not mix.
The more I research artificial sweeteners, the less I want to include them in my high fat, low carb diet. I recently read while stevia (even in a liquid form) does not raise blood sugar levels, it can raise insulin levels. The whole point of eating high fat, low carb is to keep insulin levels low.
Finding side dishes for a low carb, high fat diet can be challenging. Cauliflower rice is a great option and is very versatile! Make this side option by buying pre-riced cauliflower or rice your own.
With Christmas cookie exchanges right around the corner, I figured out the perfect recipe! These cookies taste so good that your higher carb friends probably cannot even tell the difference. If you make extra, I accept deliveries.
A few weeks ago I made a recipe for Minty Melts. While they are delicious and I can go through a bag very quickly, I thought adding cream might make them even better. I was right! Creamy Minty Melts are delicious and have officially become my new addiction.
Collagen Electrolyte Lemonade is one of my favorite ways to get in a healthy serving of collagen protein that my body needs to feel great, while also adding electrolytes. Collagen is also great for skin, hair, nails and your immune system. To learn more about the health benefits of collagen protein, read this blog.
These Milk Chocolate Peanut Clusters taste too good to be good for us – yet with approximately 8 grams of healthy fats and only 1 gram of net carbs per cluster, they are a perfect addition to any low-carb, high-fat diet. And a tasty addition!
I was born and raised in Chicago. I will eternally be a Chicago girl at heart. Sitting outside in my flip flops and t-shirt in mid-November, I am definitely happy to be in Arizona, however as a Chicago girl, I need my pizza!
Adding coconut oil to your high fat, low carb diet is an excellent way to melt away the belly fat! Try a tasty Minty Melt after meals as a way to get more coconut oil into your day. Enjoying a Minty Melt after meals will also help your body better digest fats if you display certain digestive issues with your ketogenic diet.
